Today marks my one year blogversary. Yes, I have been blogging for exactly one year today. Now I haven't always been the most consistent blogger but I did successfully complete my first NaBloPoMo and I had a few other good stretches of posts. I'm not big on New Year's Resolutions, but I do want to blog more consistently in 2008. I'm actually thinking of taking my laptop with me on my daily commute to work on blog posts. I'll let you know how that goes.
So far, I have found blogging a fantastic and rewarding experience. I love being able to sit down and blather on about whatever the heck I want. It's my way of decompressing from the stress of daily life.
On this anniversary day, I feel compelled to let you know why I decided to do this. It's quite simple. Elizabeth. I had been reading my dear friend's blog and loving it. Then I watched her complete her first NaBloPoMo and I thought, "man, I wish I could do that." Well, I could! Thanks to the glory of the internets, anyone can blog! Including me, the ultimate technology moron. Yeah, I know how to check my email and load music on my iPod, but that's about it. I am of the generation just before computers became mainstream. I used a typewriter for my high school essays and didn't own a computer until my 2nd year of university. But Blogger makes blogging idiot-proof. I just have to make the time to sit down and write.
So cheers Elizabeth and thanks for the inspiration. Who knew that blogging would become my favourite hobby.
And thanks all of you, for reading.
